To wear Leopard Print or not?

Hello my stylish friends,

I’m generally a pattern kind of fashion-wearing-chick, and leopard print is my favorite type of print to wear. It’s loud, fun and a bit wild for when I want to embrace my inner feline!

Love it or leave it, leopard and animal prints have been in fashion for a long time and are here to stay. You might want to consider Leopard print as your signature style!

Trying this trend can be really adventurous so here are some new ways in which to embrace your inner fashion feline.

Wear leopard print as a neutral. This really helps if you haven’t worn this print before (or any prints, for that matter) and are unsure what it will go with. Truly, it goes with almost everything, camel, chocolate brown, black, white, cream, navy, and more colors than you would imagine.

Start Small.  (See pic) I am usually of the “go big or go home” persuasion, but I realize that wearing leopard might intimidate.  One stunning leopard belt, bag or a pair of stunning heels will help you kick start your leopard print adventure. The key is to play up those few pieces while letting everything else take a back seat.

Pair with jeans. Leopard really shines when paired with jeans; this creates an instant “classic not trendy” look you will love. Wear leopard with blue or faded jeans and you immediately add elegance to a day time outfit.

Pair with bright color.  Leopard looks fabulous with a block of color. My favorite choices are red, emerald green, orange.  Add some glowing gold accessories, and you won’t believe how sophisticated you will look.

Too much of a good thing.  Don’t overwhelm leopard by wearing it head to toe.  Choose a coat, a jacket or sweater, or pants, or shoes, or accessories, but not all at one time. Unless you are really daring, and can pull it off!

I hope you will try a little leopard if you haven’t already! It’s pretty much my favorite print and I love it.

Stay blessed fashionista!
